In about that last note…

Nope, I’ve decided not to worship Sahkmet. I never did, only idolized the ideals, and used her name as a character and a sorta patron of my username domains. :/

Yum.

Next up, I am playing a large piano part with my youth orchestra, The Dearborn Youth Symphony. I feel so fantastic! I haven’t done anything so important since last year! I’m so happy! I’m doing the Bond theme, For Your Eyes Only and Live and Let Die.

Tonight I do concessions work at the Redford Theatre for the showing of The Great Escape.

Also, enjoy this beautiful piece of art I did.

It is titled, Death in Spring.

So happy. So cheery.

Three Cheers for Dad’s Editing Skills.

Only a few of you may know, but my dad does the monthly newsletter for the Redford Theatre, promoting around the town theater-organ concerts, articles, reports on the classic movies that we show, and other fun things.
My dad has also, taking all day, finally learned with his software to download from tape form his video camera, into the computer, into a DVD, and now he has learned to edit it like a primitive Windows Moviemaker and uploaded to Youtube. Ya-hoo!

The Redford Theatre is a restored classic moviehouse from the late 1920’s. All volunteers. Lobby piano *me, part time Nancy and the guy seen in the video only does the Stooges* and theater organ *not church organ* play before the film! We show classics from musicals, to Silent films, to more modern fare at best on original film. Examples include Singing in the Rain, Terminator, Labyrinth, Buster Keaton, Nosferatu, Vincent Price, Karate Kid… If you’re in the area *it’s located outside of Detroit* this is a surely fun place! Most tickets are only $4! Popcorn with real butter! Immense amounts of candy and even homebaked cookies! The theatre with an asian decor! Atmospheric, and showing cartoons.

A fun and Informative Review of ‘Labyrinth’.

Nostalgia Chick reviews the 80’s fantasy-muppet-fairy-Bowie’s-package movie Labyrinth.

*link above*

The website hosts lots of movie, video game and comic book reviews, lead by the main guy Nostalgia Critic. Part-time reviewer of the more femme-side of things is Nostalgia Chick, who has reviewed She-Ra and others.

Lately at the Redford Theatre where I do volunteer work at and have for 3 years  we have jumped the gun and will be showing Labyrinth June 12th and 13th. Yes. Bowie’s tight pants on screen. Wild hysteric fantasy on the big screen.

A classic movie no doubt, and we’re going ALL OUT with this one besides Caddyshack. This movie is certain to attract the people in their 30’s *since they were kids and teenagers in the 80’s and this movie is their nostalgic value* along with the younger generation that has them as their parents.

It will be SO FUN.

As for the review, what better timeing for her to do it! We had done a screening of it, making our younger board members quake with nostalgia and the older *including my parents who were born toooo early* have really mixed feelings and generally confused by it. This review will poke fun and give us laughs. I recommend it for anyone. XD It’s such a fun movie…Odd, 80’s, sexual innuendo, art direction by famous Brian Froud, completely made with puppets with the only CGI being the begginning credits, sexy Jareth, LARPING, babies, wooden actresses…
